Pos: 
Nice-sized corner who flashes ability. Fluid in transition off the line, shows the ability to stay on the receiver’s hip out of breaks and quickly locates the pass in the air. Fluidly backpedals in reverse, smoothly flips his hips and mixes it up with receivers throughout the route. Reads the receiver's eyes and gets his head back around to locate the pass in the air. Works hard to get off blocks and make plays up the field against screen passes and run plays.
Neg: 
Prefers to side shuffle downfield rather than backpedal, which negatively affects his ability to burst to the ball out of his plant. Often gets lost in deep coverage.
Analysis: 
Nixon possesses next-level size and has flashed the skill to go along with his measurables. He's a developmental prospect who could be used as a dime back in man coverage and line up on coverage units.
